Bard Announces Engagement of P&E Mining Consultants Inc. to Complete an Independent NI 43-101-Preliminary Economic Assessment ("Scopying Study") for Its Lone Pine Property, British Columbia

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 25, 2010) - Bard Ventures Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CBS)(FRANKFURT:BVU) ("Bard" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has engaged P&E Mining Consultants Inc. ("P&E") of Brampton, Ontario to complete an independent National Instrument 43-101 - Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") for its Lone Pine Molybdenum, Copper and Silver project near Houston, British Columbia.

The P&E team will be mobilized and commence field work on November 1, 2010 and initial schedules indicate that the PEA will be completed during the first quarter of 2011. The PEA will determine a preliminary open pit mine design and estimate capital and operating costs. The PEA will also include a financial analysis based on reasonable assumptions about each of the foregoing factors and other technical and economic factors. This PEA will be the first disclosure of potential project economics for the Lone Pine Property.

"We are very optimistic that this PEA will greatly assist us in raising the capital necessary to move the Lone Pine project forward," said Eugene Beukman, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company.

The Company is also continuing with its follow-up exploration program to test the Zone 61 discovered earlier in 2010 and potentially extend the existing mineral resource that will be the subject of the PEA.

The Company will continue to evaluate additional assets and secure exploration rights in the area of interest.

Bard is earning a 100% interest in the Property under the terms of an option agreement (see News Release dated September 15, 2006). The Lone Pine property exploration work is being conducted under the supervision of Qualified Person Rick Kemp, P.Geo., Vice-President-Exploration of Bard.
